Ice and water despenser solonoid stuck in on position during the night and flooded my kitchen and basement

Un plugged refrigerator, removed 2 screws holding the front control cover in place. Removed 3 screws that held the despenser assey in place and removed the power cable. Inspected the burnt and melted assey and got on line with parts select and chose the parts I needed and ordered them. They had it all and shipped it that day. I was back in business in about 3 days. Thanks again. You have saved me on this appliance several times.

The ice and water dispenser would run on after the glass was removed

I am going to be completely honest here. This problem had persisted for months. I finally decided that I would buy all the associated parts and repair the unit hoping to cover the problem. Much to my surprise, after carrying out the repair, using the instructions provided by PartSelect, I still had the problem. I decided to remove and LUBRICATE the button which depresses the Limit Switch when you push a glass against the rubber membrane. Low and behold the problem was solved. The frig is nine years old, so I feel I may have prevented other problems in the future by replacing the three parts. It was a follow the directions sort of repair. I was very pleased with PartSelect response to my order (received it next day) with standard shipping.

Ice wouldn't eject from ice dispenser

I removed the black drip grill and unscrewed the two screws holding the faceplate in place. After unplugging the faceplate from the dispensing unit, I removed the four remaining screws; be careful, one screw is shorter than the others.

I then pulled the dispensing unit away from the freezer door and removed the ice door assembly. WARNING: Make sure that you look carefully at the alignment of the return spring BEFORE you even touch it because as soon as I started using the needle-nose pliers to remove the spring, it shot across the room! Also, look carefully at how the end of the plastic rod fits over the old solenoid; in fact, look carefully at the entire plastic rod and how it aligns with everything!

Unfortunately, the pictures in the instructions are fuzzy so you can't really see how the spring is installed and how the plastic rod fits over the solenoid.

The solenoid was easy to remove and replace. Be aware that the plunger part of the solenoid slides in and out easily, so it's easy for it to fall out of the solenoid unit and roll away.

Once I had everything back where it was supposed to be, I screwed everything back in and the ice/water dispenser worked like new. I was even able to clean off some calcium deposits inside the unit while I had it opened.

If I have to do this again, I would estimate that it would only take 15-minutes or so. It took me longer because I didn't look at the alignment of the plastic rod in relation to all of the parts---that is one of the most important steps of this operation.

Anyone who is comfortable using tools and working with small parts should be able to complete this replacement project with minimal difficulty.

CustomerEd from Clinton MS

Ice door was broken

I reviewed the instructions which were very clear and began. I removed the catch tray to access the two screws. I removed those and lifted the front off. I then removed the three screws holding the dispenser unit and gently pulled the unit out. I then disconnected the two electric connnections and removed the dispenser unit from the refrigerator. The ice door tab was broken, so I really just needed to replace the door, but since I received the other new parts in the kit, I went ahead and replaced those as well. The directions were very specific, just make sure that the spring is inserted correctly. I then reinstalled the unit. When I finished, I tried it but the door would not shut properly. I disassembled the unit again and found that the spring had come loose. Looking back , I probably knocked it loose when I was installing the water tube back into place. I reassembled, making sure that the spring was installed correctly, and everything worked fine.

CustomerBob from Christiansburg VA

Ice dispenser door would not open

Repair was a breeze, just like in the provided directions. Removed the trim and wood panels, accessed the door, removed the panel, replaced the solenoid and put it all back together-piece of cake! Unfortunately, about 45 minutes after putting everything back together, water started shooting out of the dispenser and would not shut off. All of the controls became non-functional. I opened the freezer door and that made it quit shooting water. Had to remove the dispenser panel again and unplug the power to it. Have not had a chance to trouble shoot further. Did note the new solenoid seemed very warm to the touch. Did it possibly short something out?

CustomerBeth from Naples FL

My actuator pad was not working consistently and my ice was not dispensing. I had ice forming inside the freezer door where the ice drops down, as well as from the ice maker itself.

I called and described my problem to a local refrigerator repairman and he told me what the problem sounded like. After ordering what I thought to be the correct parts, I just followed the video provided by PartSelect, which made it quite simple. I have purchased parts from this company in the past and made repairs which have saved me a considerable amount. This is a terrific company for us single women!

Ice dispenser door broken

The repair went just as the short video showed. The paper instructions included with the part were not too good the photos were copies of copies from years ago with all the detail gone. But with the video on your website it was a snap for anyone with some mechanical skills.

Broken tab on ice chute door.

Just had to follow the easy to read instructions that came with the kit assembly. Only problem came when reinstalling the spring the recomended half a turn of tenison. seems like it was'nt enough tenison to completey close the door air tight. Would be much easier if the pictures where clearer and larger for older eyes to see.

Ice dispenser would not work

Our Refirgerator had custome wood covering to match the cabinets. Be sure to take the covering off first. There are four screws on the left edge fram that need to be removed and two on top of the tpe edge frame. The panels then slide right off. Remove the spill tray and unscew the two screws at the bottom. Slide up the key pad and there are three screws behind the key pad that have to come out. There are two "plug in connections that have to be disconnected to lift the dispenser unit out. Take care not to damage or separate the connector wire from the keypad and the circuitboard.

The new solenoid and flapper assembly is different than the original. My guess is the orginal design was part of the problem and the redesign allows the solenoid to work better. I was suprised the new assembly did not come with a tension spring... SO be careful and DO NOT loose the tension spring from the old assembly. there are two screws that hold the olde solenoid in plae wonce you remove the flapper and tension spring. Put the new solenoid in, hold the tapper out and put the flapper assembly in. Rotate the flapper rod until you can seat the solenoid tapper. Replace the tension Spring and then reassemble as in reverse order.
